Looking at the schedule, the one that concerns me is Sparty at home being a letdown after a potential big win on the road at night in Lincoln. Plus Sparty seems to play us tougher at the Shoe than in EL.

You have no idea how happy this makes me. I moved away from Toledo about 15 years ago so I hadn't really been keeping track.I just knew that all of the locations I used to visit had closed so I figured they had gone out of business. Next time I'm back in Toledo I'm making it a point to stop there.

I frequent a couple NY-style pizzerias here in the Bay Area, but for the sake of this list, I'll list some nostalgia ones from when I still lived in Ohio.

1. Rosie's in Toledo - I think they ended up going out of business but they are my all-time favorite. They had this garlic cheesy bread called Hot Mama Bread that was amazing.

2. Cameo Pizza in Sandusky - I went back after 15 years this last winter and was disappointed. Not sure if was a result of a decline in quality or my heightened expectations.

3. Pagliai's in Bowling Green - I lived on this during undergrad at BG. Was never really a big fan of Campus Pollyeyes, which was supposed to be the same thing but to me the original was always better.

If you venture off to downtown, there's a place in the arts district called Cornish Pasty Co. It's basically a bunch of meat pies and they're delicious. My favorites are the Cubano (basically a Cuban sandwich baked in a pastry) and the Pilgrim (thanksgiving dinner baked in a pastry). And their garlic cheese mashed potatoes are some of the best I've ever had.

Ditto. My go-to whenever I go there is Andy's Sage Fried Chicken Benedict. I've gotten it probably 10 times and have never been able to finish it.

Park MGM is the rebranded Monte Carlo. They are in the process of renovating it. It's mostly finished but there's still some work they're doing. But I agree with what was stated above. I'm not a big fan of what they've done. But the area outside between that, NYNY and T-Mobile Arena is really fun, especially during Knights games.

Oh and see a Knights game if you can. Went to two last week and loved it.

Comment 14 Jan 2019

I normally just root for former Buckeyes to have individually good games, but I've found myself rooting heavily for the Saints all season, outside of the one game against the Browns. I probably watched every Saints game this season that wasn't slotted at the same time as the Browns. Yesterday was especially satisfying watching the former Buckeyes ball out all over the field, especially MT and Marshon.

If we're going the way of super conferences, the Big 12 is the weakest of the power 5 so they will be poached and if they do, might as well grab the two biggest names. If this happens, I think they'd have to eliminate divisions, but have pods of protected games that are played every year. If they did pods of 4, then they could set it up where you play the other 3 games and plus two teams from each of the other 3 pods to complete a 9 game schedule. This way even with 16 teams you'd still play your protected games annually and everyone else in the conference twice every 4 years. And with divisions eliminated, the teams with the best records play for the B1G title.

Comment 06 Dec 2018

I completely agree on "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmastime." I absolutely loathe that song. I also cannot stand any version of the Little Drummer Boy that's not the Crosby/Bowie version. Without Bowie it would be trash but he makes it bearable.

And it's funny you have that reaction to the Peanuts Christmas song. That's one of the few songs where I can be in the worst of moods and hear it and immediately be cheered up.

Comment 03 Dec 2018

That's the way this season has gone. Any other year, a 12-1 B1G champion is in the playoff and its QB with those video game numbers easily walks away with the Heisman. Unfortunately, neither of those things are happening.

Comment 28 Nov 2018

I would do 8 but with some caveats:

-- Power 5 champions only automatically qualify if they finish in the top 12. This would alleviate some concerns if, for example, Pitt and Northwestern won their respective conference championships this year.

-- All Power 5 conferences must adopt a 9 game schedule and in order to even be considered for qualification into the playoff, you must schedule at least one OOC Power 5 and no FCS opponents.

-- Games will be seeded by the committee and the first round will be played at the home of the higher ranked opponent.

Comment 28 Nov 2018

Honestly, there's not much room in our schedule to get complacent. Another thing of note is that 2019 will be a year where we get a double bye...however, they're before Northwestern and Maryland. And whoever the hell thought it would be a good idea to schedule Penn State and TTUN in consecutive weeks is an asshole.
